Walk 18 – Inner Park Ring Walk (52 km)

Tempelhofer Feld park

Tempelhofer Feld park

The Inner Park Ring Walk takes a large loop around Berlin’s inner city. It passes through a chain of large and small green parks and gardens, and explores some of the city’s lesser known green areas. Since 2008, the Inner Park Ring has also included the spreading open spaces of the former Berlin-Tempelhof airfield. Here, you can enjoy the remarkable experience of over two kilometres of open space right in the heart of a major city! Volkspark Wilmersdorf, landscaped in the early 20th century in an ice-age gulley, is also an impressively large park. In north-west Berlin, the Inner Park Ring crosses Volkspark Jungfernheide, the city’s second largest park.

Volkspark Jungfernheide

Volkspark Jungfernheide, set on a spreading 146 hectares, was established in the 1920s on a section of the Jungfernheide Woods, which once stretched from today’s Hauptbahnhof main station to Spandau. In the north, the walk connects the urban localities of Wedding, Gesundbrunnen and Prenzlauer Berg. The walk’s eastern section passes directly through some of Berlin’s most vibrant areas, particularly along Friedrichshain’s Simon-Dach-Straße with its diverse cafés and restaurants, and in Kreuzberg’s Wrangelkiez neighbourhood. As the walk crosses the canals “Landwehrkanal” and the “Neuköllner Schifffahrtskanal”, it has gone full circle and returns once again to the starting point of the open spaces at the Tempelhofer Feld park.
